The 18-month-long Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration has not yet begun, but it looks like adjustments may already need to be made. The beautiful decorations on Cinderella’s Castle make it look elegant and celebratory, however, they need to be secure too. After a jewel fell off last weekend, Cast Members have restored it to its rightful place, hopefully with a little extra support!
The “EARidescent” decorations have been slowly added to Cinderella Castle since the start of this year. We are excited to join the revelry starting on October 1st, 2021, but with this much preparation to achieve, Disney has been working ahead of time. It’s probably a good thing too! That gives Disney plenty of time to iron out details like missing jewels.
The jewel fell off of one of the castle turrets and revealed an adhesive substance underneath. The decorations are supposed to be hurricane-proof, a worthy goal in Florida. But this little incident has us wondering. The item has been firmly reattached although we can’t say for certain what caused it to come off in the first place. We also hope the harsher weather to come will not prove detrimental to the rest of the banners and decor.
The design for the castle’s 50th Anniversary look was created by Walt Disney Imagineering. It was installed by Walt Disney World teams. “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” deserved some special attention, which means in part that Imagineers developed new colors and hues to adorn the castle. The Imagineers were inspired by Disney Legend Mary Blair and her vision of the classic, “Cinderella.”
If you haven’t checked out the 50th-anniversary decor at Cinderella castle yet, be sure and do so! It’s a beautiful new vision of a Disney icon. And don’t forget that the celebration starts on October 1st!
